Juventus, a highly successful European football club, has introduced its academy in Ghana. Former Blackstars player, Kwadwo Asamoah and Ghana’s Consul to Italy, Massimiliano Colasuonno Taricone, led the initiative.
This academy, situated on Tetteh Quarshie Avenue in Accra, seeks to promote Juventus’ colors, techniques, and values in Ghana. It provides opportunities for boys and girls aged six to 21 to develop their skills, both on and off the field.
The facility includes a football pitch, padel tennis court, multi-purpose court for various sports, and four classrooms. Asamoah emphasized the goal of shaping young talents into better individuals before they become professional footballers.
Kwadwo Asamoah recounted his involvement with other clubs but chose Juventus after a call from the coach, Max Allegri, and the team manager.
Taricone, who played a significant role in the academy’s establishment, expressed his excitement for a project years in the making. He acknowledged support from President Nana Akufo-Addo, Sports Minister Mustapha Ussif, and Education Minister Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum.
The official launch of Juventus Academy in Ghana is expected to be realized by the end of 2023.
